Praise the Lord, Beloved of God!
A few weeks ago the Lord dropped in my spirit that there is to be" no more lack" in my life in any area. I happily received that word, and I purposed not to look at things in the natural. The house of the righteous shall stand! How he brings that word to pass is up to Him. Now we know when one receives a word like that : abundance, more than enough, and there is a witness in one's spirit, here comes the enemy with an antonymn to the word one has received. He is going to say the exact opposite of what God has said. Why? Because he is a liar and the father of lies. God says you are healed, the enemy lies, and brings doubt. Father says move forward, the enemy throws up obstacles. Abba says the door is open, that old fabulist sets a trap door. " Did God really say...?", he asks. He is a liar, but God is not a man that He should lie! That is the one thing He cannot do.
In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
He never lies! And so, as the enemy is want to do, he has attacked me in my finances. When it rains it pours! But God is so faithful. But God! He is a safety net under us. There are things I need to take care of in my household. The enemy comes with the antonymn for my tithe: "Just put it off and you can give it NEXT month." Oh, no you do NOT! I am not going to tie God's hands where He cannot move on my behalf! Please believe I happily tithed sunday without a second thought. Those funds are NOT mine. In God's economy, the tithe belongs to Him. It is my reasonable service and a part of my helping to build the kingdom. You, too!
Nehemiah 10:39 (English Standard Version)
For the people of Israel and the sons of Levi shall bring the contribution of grain, wine, and oil to the chambers, where the vessels of the sanctuary are, as well as the priests who minister, and the gatekeepers and the singers.
"We will not neglect the house of our God."
I am still required to obey and bring my "tithes and offerings into the storehose" (Malachi 3:10). When we take care of Abba's business and obey in faith, He takes care of OUR business! The righteous do not go begging for bread, or anything else. Declare the Word! And believe it. We are not deceived by the enemy's devices. I know what God dropped in my spirit and I believe God! Here is a thing I have learned: The enemy is going to operate in just the opposite of what God says, and what He wants to do for, and through Us. We must be wise. So because of the attack on my finances, I am even more assured and certain I heard God. No more lack! Glory to God!! This attack is an antonymn, polar opposite of what God has purposed for me. The enemy is a liar trying to steal my blessing and the place in which God would have me to walk. I am excited! I have food,clothing, and shelter and if I have one penny, I have money! I told God this morning I do not have a "Plan B". He is my "Plan A", as in Alpha and Omega! I am totally dependant on HIM. I do not have any strategies to work things out. "I do not borrow, I lend." I reminded Him it is in his Word. I must approach this with a Kingdom mindset, perspective, and tenacity. WE must walk in that God-given authority! I do not want to worry, I do not want to feel angst. Just...No! I will keep my eyes on God! The focus here is not on me. I am just giving a current testimony and I hope it encourages someone in whatever your temporary circumstances may be. Do not buy into the into the enemy's lies. Know that, actually, it is completely opposite of what you are facing. See the antonymn of the situation. I know funds are on the way! It has nothing to do with my bank account. I have been in this place before, and God has never let me down. NEVER. Never, ever! I am smiling as I type because "no lack" is surely a reality, hence, this attack. I will not speak against what Abba said to me in prayer. "No lack in ANY area." Any area! Are you kidding me? Yes Lord, I am warring over THAT word! What has Abba Father told you? Is an antonymn in effect? It is just the opposite of what you are experiencing in the natural. You must be somebody in the kingdom! That word is right around the corner about to be fulfilled! Be encouraged. I celebrate you, Beloved! I choose to celebrate right in the face of the "antonymn" situation. Let's celebrate together. Discern the reality of that word coming to pass. You know what God said! Keep speaking it into the atmosphere. And may God shut the mouth of the enemy! Stay kingdom-minded, dear ones. Amen.
